    That's a talented gal. One day she's going to make a man very happy. She's not afraid of getting dirty or working. Not many kids these days are interested in this type of stuffs or working at all. Even more impressive a girl is! Keep it up y'all. I'd love to be part of a tow company like this.

    Ghost of the Rubicon trail's Cadillac hill......
    It was Elizabeth Honia , Born in Italy and known as "Lizzy" to her friends that died in the crash of the Cadillac that gave the name of Cadillac hill on the Rubicon trail. The hill isn't any harder than any other part of the trail but is known to be the most feared. It is legend that if you can guess Elizabeth's favorite food she will let you pass without instilling the fear in you that overwhelms the hill as you climb it.

    Women make great welders. My wife took welding in tech school. First time she had ever touched a stick welder or any welder for that matter. She was putting the fellas in that class to shame. And several of them already had tons of experience with welding. Boys better watch out, Lizzy is going to be a doing everything in the shop before long.

    I seen that you had a successful trip to the Rubicon. You were going East on Hwy 50 on the West side of Robinson Pass. I was going West to one of the gold mines that we service hauling Quick Lime among other things. I was in the Barney Trucking truck with the set of doubles dust bucket trailers. Your Morrvair sure looks great on the Road and when you went by me it sounded great. Great work.

    CHEAP / Easy tips for More HP -
    1) Run a outside air Snorkel with Air Filter to pull in Ambient Temperature Air ( 65-100 degrees ) which WILL Give you MORE HP. Also Preventing Pre-Ignition & detonation. Also increases Fuel Mileage.
    2) Run Your Fuel line Through a Transmission cooler for Cooler fuel. Increasing Hp. Decreasing detonation & pre ign.
    Put Cooler up Front before Radiator.also increases Gas Mileage.
    3) I Don’t know what Engine temp u are Running But Run a 180 Degree thermostat with a 4 Row Radiator to Cool the beast and keep it at temp. You should be running 180 degrees coolant temp. For a good balance of Engine Life & Hp.

    Good video ! Awesome welding Lizzie !!! Those beads were Spot on! Perfect Heat penetration caught on camera. Damn fine Looking Welds !!!

    Hey Matt look up how often one of those grinder wheels comes apart. After you see the damage they can cause you will wear a face shield then. It is not worth taking the chance on if or when it might happen. All it takes is a careless worker in the factory dropping the box and putting it in the cart without checking it because he wants to go to lunch and one disk gets cracked.
    A peice of that can go through you skull no kidding.

    So what's every one guess for the gas mileage for the Morvair? I am guessing 9, but if Matt airs up his tire past thirty I bet he can get around 12.

    it makes me feel better about using roofing products on auto projects now that I've seen someone else do what Ive been doing for years! I work for a friend that owns a roofing business and we are always using this stuff on our projects... Metal roofing screws hold the world together...I use TPO roofing on my kids bicycle tire- cut thin strips and put them in between the tire and the tube... Kinda like MR Tuffy but way stronger. and roof calking... don't get me started on that. Great video!
